This sixteenth episode of Philosophy Bakes Bread aired on WRFL Lexington, 88.1 FM, on Monday, April 17th of 2017, and was a special episode on the subject of disability and American philosophy. It was another special episode recorded on location at a conference, except for Eric Weber, who skyped in from a closet in Ohio. This episode features four guests who were all on a panel at the annual gathering of the 2017 Society for the Advancement of American Philosophy in Birmingham, AL.
Our guests included:
Dr. Justin Bell, a.k.a. “Papa J.B.,” of the University of Houston Victoria;
Dr. Nate Jackson of Capital University;
Dr. Sarah Woolwine of the University of Central Oklahoma;

You Tell Me!
For our future “You Tell Me!” segments, our guests proposed an excellent question for you, the listener. We’d love to know what you think about it! Here’s the question: “How are you disabled? What does that mean about your vision of the good life?”
